RAGBRAI underway

Council Bluffs, IA – The 37th RAGBRAI is underway.

More than 10,000 bicyclists left Council Bluffs Sunday morning. They spent Sunday evening in Red Oak before continuing on to Greenfield.

RAGBRAI Director T.J. Juskiewicz says Council Bluffs was chosen as host city for several reasons, including the new Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. This was the fourth time Council Bluffs hosted RAGBRAI.

The 442 mile bike ride ends Saturday in Burlington, Iowa.
